Inspected Gadget: Pano App for iPhone

Skipping past the news (or, non-news) of the weekend’s technology-world-a-tittering over reports of a new iPhone, I was digging around this morning for some fun photo apps and came across a reduced price on the Pano app. I’ve always been into true panoramic photography, even going so far as to rent some of the real deal, rotating-lens variety of cameras. So if you can’t justify carrying around a Linhoff, Horseman, or even the Lomo Horizon, at least there’s an app to get you wet. To quote RoboCop, “I’d buy that for a dollar!” (I stitched together the photo above by taking six portrait photos from left to right, covering a three block span of buildings.

The last words

We already know the ipad or iphone will not support flash. But the final blow has come down from the apple mountain top.

“Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs. Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine, and only code written in C, C++, and Objective-C may compile and directly link against the Documented APIs (e.g., Applications that link to Documented APIs through an intermediary translation or compatibility layer or tool are prohibited).”

Inspected Gadget: Kindle for Blackberry

For all you crackberry addicts out there, or those of you tethered to one via work, Amazon has released a free Kindle app for Blackberry. Free download lets you read books on the go… or while in meetings in the office. Just like the iPhone version, owning a Kindle is not required – purchases are tied to your Amazon account. The WhisperSync system lets you bookmark and make notes as you read, and synchronizes the last page you read across any Kindle devices or apps.
Currently available in the U.S. only, on these models: Bold 9000 & 9700, Curve 8520 & 8900, Storm 9530 & 9550, and Tour 9630.

The Lumen Tactile Display prototype has a lot going for itself. As for the “world of tomorrow” themed video, it needs some help. Now you need to hire a really good designer/UX/UI person to put a face on it. Created by Ivan Poupyrev
